A small group of Richmond Hill residents including Joel Clements, Marj Andre, Suzanne Smoke and myself are organizing a Screening of the Secret Path in October at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. The Secret Path is a film by Tragically Hip frontman, Gord Downie about the true story of Chanie Wenjack and Canada’s Residential Schools.
The evening will include the Secret Path screening, a panel discussion, and keynote talk about the Indigenous Residential School issue in Canada. As we look forward to our next 150 years as a nation, reconciliation with our Indigenous Community will be crucial. Conversations like this will lead the way to a more vibrant future for all of us in country – Canada.
